Riverside, CA, 10:33 AM. A lone male suspect entered the Wells Fargo Bank branch located inside the Ralph’s Market at 6155 Magnolia Ave. The suspect approached a female teller, announced he was robbing the bank and demanded money. The victim complied with the robber’s demands and gave the suspect an undisclosed amount of cash. The suspect placed the money in a backpack and left the bank on foot. The same suspect is believed responsible for several other robberies in the City of Riverside since late August 2000.

The suspect was wearing a dark baseball cap with the letter "M" on the front, a dark T-shirt, baggy shorts, white socks and black tennis shoes. The suspect is believed to be in possession of a handgun and should be considered armed and dangerous.

Wells Fargo Bank has offered a $5,000.00 reward for information leading to the identification and arrest of the suspect in this robbery.
